I downloaded keyremap from the MS web (it's supposed to allow you to remap the keyboard under Win95).  The extreemly sketchy readme (by the MS kernel team) says after installing it to use it by opening the control panel
keyboard applet.  They don't say how to install it.  The distribution comes with .inf, .dll, and .vxd files (one each).  How do I install them?  Moving
them to directories containing their namesakes didn't work.  The .inf file seems to contain registry update info, but regedit won't import it (it's not a .reg file).
 
Control panel/keyboard properites/general/change/have disk
won't accept the .inf file or a directory with all
the distribution files either.

I would extract all of the files into a newly created directory

Exsample: keyremap

After all the files are extracted to this directory, right click on the .INF file and the menu will appear, from there select "Install"  this should install keyremap and update the control panel...keyboard
